1956 CHEVROLET 3100 Pickup SALE/TRADE
I have 3 other vehicles listed: 1928 Chevy Rod Pickup LISTING #1382074 ;1957 Custom 300 LISTING #1382071; 1957 Ford Custom ForDor LISTING #1382070 ; My goal is to sell 2 and keep the other 2, and if a trade is involved, I can turn around and sell it; it being a lower cost vehicle maybe more easy to sell.
NOTE: IF SOMEONE WITH MONEY WANTS TO BUY ALL FOUR, $75,000.00 WILL DO IT.
Driving the 1956 Chevrolet pickup and at car shows you see a lot of thumbs-up, and pictures being taken of it. They are looking at an overall mostly well painted pickup with flames, flames that are usually only on hot rod cars. The builder/mechanic did an excellent job in clipping the 68 Camaro front and rear end on to the 1956 frame.

1956 CHEVROLET 3100 Pickup:
To be helpful to inquiries, I decided to compile the additional information to hopefully answer more of the general questions. I am interested in selling so I am looking forward to offers.
The Vehicle Description is all correct based on what I know of the 1956 Chevy Pickup. It starts good, runs good and brakes well; and as you can see from the pictures it looks great. As I said in the Vehicle Description ..."mostly all-around good paint job."; I do see a couple of imperfections and/or nicks, even though the paint is about seven-years old it still looks great. I am looking at fixing a couple of other minor issues.
The reason I decided to sell it is that I do have 7 cars: 3 family cars and 4 oldies. Our plans of building the big garage are not materializing, so my drive way is crowded. Age is creeping up on me with some physical health issues.
